Come hear Andrew Lawler discuss his book Under Jerusalem: The Buried History of the World’s Most Contested City on February 23rd at 7pm! 

Under Jerusalem is a sweeping history of the hidden world below the Holy City— a saga of biblical treasures, intrepid explorers, and political upheaval. It takes readers into the tombs, tunnels, and trenches of Jerusalem, brings to life the indelible characters who have investigated its subterranean landscape, and reveals how their pursuit has not only defined the conflict over modern Jerusalem but could provide a map for two peoples and three faiths to peacefully coexist.

Andrew Lawler is the author of two other books and has written more than a thousand newspaper and magazine articles from more than 24 countries. His work has appeared in The New York TimesThe Washington PostNational GeographicSmithsonian, and many others. He is a contributing writer for Science and a contributing editor for Archaeology. Following the in-person event, Under Jerusalem will be available for sale and signing.
